Entered into production in 2016, the Akkeshi distillery presents its very first single malt ; Hokkaido Akkeshi Single Malt Lightly Peated Sarorunkamuy, a whisky with a slightly peaty character and a delicate, ample and complex profile. Distilled in 2016, the single malts were aged for 3 years in Bourbon, Sherry and for the key malt in Mizunara barrels, Japanese oak.
The result of this blend is very promising and is revealed on the nose by aromas of red fruits, toasted malt and crème brûlée, to which are added on the palate fruity notes of candied cherry, yuzu, bitter orange, as well as greedier notes of hazelnut chocolate brownie, and small spicy touches of nikki cinnamon and sansho pepper. A soft and persistent finish in which white pepper and orange peel will accompany the disappearance of the aromas.
Product limited to 1 bottles per order.

Like its neighbor, it is inspired by the Scottish spirit with its pair of Forsyths traditional pot stills and the use of peated barley to produce single malts with a strong peaty character like those of Islay.
